Editorial Reviews

Review

"These photos convey a really happy period for them and for me. It all comes down to music, they were without a doubt the greatest band of the 20th century, and that's why these photographs are so important." (Harry Benson, 2012)"

About the Author

Glasgow-born Harry Benson has photographed every US President since Eisenhower, the Civil Rights movement, and was next to Robert Kennedy when he was assassinated. As well as The Beatles, he has shot some of the biggest personalities of the last 50 years, including Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor and Her Majesty The Queen. In 2009, he was made Commander of the British Empire (CBE).

Today, walking to my daily bookstore, i stumbled upon this big book. Intrigued, i asked the salesman if he had any information about it: immediately after, he opened the book to take a quick look. He was as amazed as i was to see, for the very first time, a lot of images from the boys at their best as a touring band. The Beatles On The Road: 1964-1966 is a pricey book but believe me, if you find a copy grab one. Not because it will raise in value (as it already has) through the years; not because it comes with good ol'Harry's signature; not because it's a Taschen book which, to me, is a symbol of design and art mixed together; but because the pictures are fantastic. We've seen thousands of them and, believe me, i have thousands of them in different books and in different formats but this...A photo is worth a thousand words and this book is a testament of how The Beatles behaved on their own inner circle: expressions of joy, sadness, boredom and having fun in one place. Benson you did quite a good job. Thank you for letting us see what they were all about on tour.
With 272 pages he covers their rise to stardom and quitting the tours. The pictures, really, don't need any explanation. Us, the rabid fans, know were the pictures were taken and when. But seeing the ones that didn't make it in the first place (as well as ones that have been seen throughout the world a number of times) is a joy. Specially in this HUGE format. In an era when i wasn't around (i was born in 1977) the quality of the pictures remains outstanding (even better than today's standard). I'm taking this book to my parents house so we, as followers, can enjoy every single page while listening to some tunes. Long live The Beatles (i wish more books were like this one). Go. Buy. And enjoy.

Taschen has a reputation for high-quality books, and this one is no exception. I love the experience of turning the pages of a good quality book, especially when every page is a delight. If, like me, you are a forever Beatles fan and also have a deep appreciation of photography, this book is a double delight to own. Some of these photos are iconic and some newly-seen, but they are all beautifully reproduced and absolutely stunning in this large format. I'm so happy that Harry Benson was there to capture these insider moments so expertly, and is sharing them in all their glory! I highly recommend this book . . . it would make a gorgeous gift.

This book is wonderful, great pictures and a great collectable, too bad that the packaging was extremely poor! There was hardly any packing in the box causing the book to sustain some damage to the corner and pages. I have never received anything from Amazon that was packaged that poorly and I was very dissapointed!!!! The damage was not extreme enough to return but enough that it spoiled the edge and knowing it could have been prevented with a little more care in packaging!!

This book is Fantastic and of the highest quality. The pages in this book put all other Art Books to shame!
This is numbered and signed by one of the Greatest photographers of all time. The book cover is wonderful and protects this great Art Book. I have gotten Art Books in the past and they are read and looked at once or twice and forgotten, not this book.
If you liked or Love the Beatles this book is a must have.

Harry Benson is a genius and has captured the Beatles at their most natural and adorable during their heyday, 1964 -1966 when they made their around the world tours. Readers will be delighted with the photographs and love watching the Beatles at play, so to to speak.

The Beatles: Six Days that Changed the World. February 1964 is a good companion book to this one.

In 2004 a local art gallery featured Benson's first book and a gallery of photographs of the Beatles. Naturally I HAD to buy the book, which was autographed. I love the book and Benson's collection of Beatles' photographs will delight all readers. You will get treated to images you might not have seen. You will be reading and loving this gem eight days a week!
